The different categories of Water Damage
When it comes to determining what it is that is needed for water removal and water damage repair to begin, the severity of the water damage has to be properly assessed first. When it comes to the various categories of water damage, they are usually categorized into three main categories. The first category usually refers to clean water which can be described as the kind of water that does not pose any threat to the health of humans. The main cause of this category of water damage is usually the overflowing of sinks and broken appliances that are commonly used in the house like a washing machine. The second category usually refers to what is known as gray water. This type of water can be described as the type that is normally contaminated and if it is consumed, it may end up bringing a number of illnesses to the person who is drinking it. This is because this category of water usually contains many microorganisms and may be as a result of broken sump pumps, broken toilets and also seepage (this is the slow escape of either gas or liquid that tends to happen through the small holes or porous materials). The third category of water damage is what is known as black water. This is the type of water which is considered to be unsanitary since it normally contains organisms and bacteria that may make one fall seriously sick if they get into contact with it. The main sources of this type of water are usually from broken or problems that are related to sewage drains as well as the contamination of any standing water.
Water damage can also be put into different classes. The class in which a particular type of water damage is in is very important especially when it comes to the assessing the options of water damage repair that may best suit your property or home. When our qualified team of technicians at El Monte comes to your premise, they are first going to make sure that they know the class of the water damage that they are dealing with. The first class is the type of water damage that is considered to be least harmful. When it comes to this type of damage, different materials tend to absorb very little water. Also, in this class, the water repair options are said to be the easiest to handle. The second class is whereby there is a fast rate of evaporation meaning that all your cushions and carpets may end up ben affected. In this class, the water repair options are said to be more difficult. The third class is whereby the evaporation rate is considered to be the fastest. The water from this class may either come from overhead sources or broken sprinklers that may end up soaking all your furniture and walls. In the fourth class, special water removal and restoration procedures have to be followed to the end. This class of water damage tends to affect the plaster, hardwood floors and also the concrete.
When it comes to damage caused by water, there are a number of factors that can lead to serious damage that may be very expensive for you to deal with.
Some of the causes of water damage include things like clogged toilets, dishwasher hoses that are broken, broken pipes, dishwashers that are leaking, cracks on the foundation, leaky roofs and also washing machines that may be overflowing. These are some of the major cause of water damage that tends to occur in many homes. Heavy snow, floods, and heavy rains may also be other factors that tend to cause water damage which may also end up affecting your entire basement. When your home, property or business is flooded with too much water, this may end up bringing about some minor problems like having too much water in your basement which may end up destroying the structure of your home or business.
